If it will go up in the U.S., Europe will sure follow.

Price go up by $390 as Feb. 1
Also, the battery adapter-battery-charger combo will included till Feb.28
Least my dealer told me Friday, when I ordered my second HD100
Some reason I don't beleive the lens upgrade. My dealer never heard about new lens. (Armato's)

Just spoke to JVC Europe. The guy there said that he knows of no price increases over here and that they are completely separate from JVC US. Looks like it might skip us then.

That may be because Europe's price is already over priced.

Could be because of US/Japan currency fluctuations. Or they just want more money. If the battery kit is included, maybe not such a bad thing after all?

JVC HD100U Power Promotion Package NOT available in Canada

I just got off the phone with a JVC Canada Rep and he clearly stated that Canadian JVC Dealers would NOT be offering the Power Promotion package in Canada. Instead, they are offering new pricing which includes the KA-551 Tripod Plate and the WCV-82SC Wide Converter that has bumped the street price up by approx $500 CAN.

It appears that most of the JVC dealers in Canada opted for this alternative pricing promotion to avoid cutting into the profitablity of portable battery sales.

If anyone knows of any authorized Canadian dealers that are doing otherwise, I'd be interested in having that information.

At least 2 of our sponsers, zotz and evs ARE participating in the idx battery promotion, both with excellent prices too. All I had to do was ask about it.

This is a smart move IMO, and a very good deal at only $500 increase. These are both JVC distributed items so there will be no delays sending in redeemable "coupons" or waiting for IDX stock (as I did, and then just went with AB instead.)
It also gives the end users the option to choose a 3rd party power system to fit their own production environment.

And welcome to the forum Michael. We live in the same area. I can hook you up with my dealer in Hamilton if you want.

I wish I knew that...Brian at Zotz is a good guy and they've done well by me.
If I continue to be impressed with it, I'll get our second HD100 from them.

What is the CV-82SC Wide Converter? Is that just the adaptor to fit different lenses, or is it a len enhancement?

It attaches to the end of the stock lens. It turns the stock lens into a approximately a 16x4.5 (4.5mm to 72mm instead of 5.5mm to 88mm)

Albert,

As I understand it, the WCV-82SC will 'widen' the standard Th 16x5.5 RMU lens that ships with the camera by a factor of approx. 30% or .7. If you want to see the item, its on page 15 of the JVC HD100U brochure.
You can downlaod the brochure at

Hope that helps

The factor is 0.82x

Cavision has a 0.7x http://www.cavision.com/optics/broadcast/BWA07X86.htm and century has a 0.7x and a 0.5x that may work. http://www.centuryoptics.com/product...cast/index.htm
